The Witcher review (PC)

Gaming Evolution
30 October 2007
  • Conclusion: The best thing that The Witcher has going for it is that, despite the many technical issues, I can’t stay away from it. The intriguing narrative, interesting characters, extremely well-executed decisions/consequences system, and the fun action combat keep calling me.
